Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-6109) Consider coldness in STCS compaction
Date Fri, 04 Oct 2013 18:46:43 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-6109:

Ah, right.

(Since earlier tasks in the queue, or subsequent flushes, may cause us to re-evaluate the
sstables we'd like to compact.)

Feels to me like we're feature creeping a bit.  I'd say let's focus this one on what to do
within a CF, and we can open another to prioritize across CFs instead of FIFO.

> # Don't compact cold sstables at all
> # Compact cold sstables only if there is nothing more important to compact
> The latter is better if you have cold data that may become hot again...  but it's confusing
if you have a workload such that you can't keep up with *all* compaction, but you can keep
up with hot sstable.  (Compaction backlog stat becomes useless since we fall increasingly
